The present study reports the case of a permanent tooth with incomplete root formation and lateral luxation end- odontically treated with a therapeutic protocol associat- ing calcium hydroxide, 2% chlorhexidine gel and zinc ox- ide (2:1:2 ratio) used as intracanal dressing with no need of replacement. In conventional apexification treatment, intracanal dressing normally includes calcium hydroxide paste associated with aqueous, viscous or oily vehicle
periodically changed. The intracanal dressing used in this article, however, did not need to be replaced. The authors concluded that the protocol proved effective in treating a permanent tooth with open apex, as the tooth remained in the oral cavity fulfilling its esthetic and masticatory func- tions. Treatment cost and time were decreased.
